Hey! You can hard slice, pull, skull, chunk, balloon, top, or just simply miss....but not shank. No, no, no....that's just for me and me only. You'll see.

I tried the steps, it help a bit but I still get some shanks.

I was fortunate when I paid a visit but to meet dgman in BFG. Da man sorted me out instantly. You cannot imagine how relieve I was. I was figuring out up and down trying to find out what caused it. The solution was obvious and dgman explain how one ended being shanked victim aka me..

Many thanks dgman for the pointers. Really appreciate it.

Btw, if you are there you should hit a few shots of the new bfg forged irons. Omg, they are sooooooo freaking soft and very nice. I love them...deep deep.

70% of the time people who shank because they did not do a proper complete turn.
